Erica G. Wilson
From single-plaintiff to class action matters, Erica’s litigation practice is informed by her investigative approach to defending employers. Her significant experience with e-discovery, data analysis, forensic examinations, and social media research enables her to tailor case strategies and solutions to the facts and data--wherever they may be. She brings her enthusiasm for telling the client’s story to a broad range of matters, including wage and hour, worker classification, discrimination, wrongful termination, harassment, retaliation, employee leaves, and other claims, as well as the enforcement of noncompetition and arbitration agreements.
Additionally, Erica assists clients in drafting and implementing workplace policies and procedures and by evaluating employment-related risks, such as wage and hour, noncompetition and privacy concerns, particularly in the tech and gig economy sectors.
